How to play MKV files from a USB drive to my Hisense Android TV?
“Hi, guys, I am looking for the best way to view MKV files from an USB drive to my Android TV. I have a Hisense U8H - 65U8H TV which supports playing video files through USB drive. Most of my movies are in MKV format on my external hard drive. So I plugged the external hard drive into the Android TV and tried to play them directly. The thing is that some of the MKV movies are playable on my Hisense Android TV, but others are not. How can I make all of them playable? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.”
MKV file has many different types. Just because it says it's an mkv on the PC doesn't mean they are the same. It is a wrapper format, meaning it doesn't actually specify how you encode the video and audio into digital forms. If your TV doesn't have the necessarily codecs for the particular avi file, it won't play it. In that case, we would recommend converting MKV to the widely-accepted MP4 format first. Here's a quick guide telling you how to do this.
